MANILA — President Benigno C. Aquino III on Monday said his administration will continue to serve more Filipinos through good governance, in order to bring numerous benefits to them.

In his Christmas message, President Aquino cited Jesus’ humble beginning, being born in a manger and not in a mansion or luxurious place.

Bilang Mesiyas, binigyan Niya ng pag-asa ang naliligaw ng landas; pinangunahan ang Kanyang mga disipulo sa matibay na pananampalataya; at nagsilbing bukal ng malasakit at paglilingkod sa kapwa,” he said.

The President said the story of the birth of Jesus provides a guide to promoting good governance in the country.

Patuloy nating itinatama ang mali sa sistema; Itinutuon natin ang pansin sa paghahatid ng agarang benepisyo sa ating mga kababayan, lalo na sa mas nangangailangan,” President Aquino said.

The Chief Executive said that for the past four years, his administration has taken great strides in holding accountable corrupt officials, resolving inherited challenges and problems, providing the needs of Filipinos during calamities and conflicts, and expanding opportunities to improve the people’s socio-economic conditions.

President Aquino said his administration is working to make changes permanent and significant.

Ito ang magiging handog natin sa susunod na henerasyon: Isang Pilipinas na malaya sa katiwalian, pangmatagalan ang kapayapaan at bawat Pilipino ay may kakayahang itaguyod ang buhay na tunay na marangal at masagana,” he said.
